World of Tanks To Launch Retail Edition
Following their recent announcement adding the final game to Wargaming’s war trilogy, the latest news from their website is that the original World of Tanks title will be launching a boxed retail version later this month. The retail version will include the full client, a premium account and combined in game items/gold worth over $25.00 as well as a nice starter tank with some unique premium upgrades.
The list of F2P titles that are eventually able to release a retail version is somewhat empty, World of Tanks has over 5 million registered accounts and could become the biggest success story of F2P to retail MMO games in the past few years. The game will be priced at $19.99 and will be available at all the big gaming outlets across the globe, players will still be able to sign up and play for free via the website but collectors are sure to relish the chance of owning a boxed copy of such a popular game.
Wargaming.net has two other titles on the way to release, World of Warplanes and World of Battleships were both announced earlier this month, if the success of WoT is anything to go by you can expect retail versions of the new titles sometime later this year.
